There's something fishy about this.

Dingle's Oceanworld Aquarium has been receiving quite a lot of attention this week all because of their gay penguins.

Headlines have been squawking about how over half of their Gentoo penguins have chosen same-sex partners.

It's even become an international matter, with the aquarium receiving a call from The New York Post no less!

However, we've been carrying out some hard-nosed journalism.

It turns out the story has gotten totally out of flipper.

Speaking to Maura from the aquarium, we found out the aquarium has 2 couples which are same sex.

So 4 penguins out of 14.

Missy and Bubbles, two females, are living very happily together.

While two males, Uisce and Oisin, have also paired up.

Whatever the mix up, we absolutely love this story.

We hope Missy, Bubbles, Uisce and Oisin have many more happy-feet years together!
